We Love 3T
I remember singing in the kitchen floor with my sister and cousins to groups like New Edition and the Monkees when I was younger. I was just five years old when I remember seeing the Jackson Five for the very first time. They were rerunning the Jackson 5ive cartoons and I remember falling in love with Michael, Marlon, Jermaine, Tito, and Jackie. I still can remember my father playing the "oldies but goodies" on the radio and on the 25th Motown Anniversary seeing Michael Jackson and his brothers all grown up for the first time and seeing Michael Moon walk across the stage. I remember asking my dad if that was Michael and his brothers from the J
Aretha Franklin was my daddy’s favorite singer and he enjoyed watching her perform, especially in the "Blues Brothers Movie". He was the one who introduced me to music and the first time I danced was when he came home from a dance one night with my mother and he showed me how to do the "Twist". I will always love him for that.
I love watching movies and was in several small plays in Middle School. I would love to play the part of one of the Supremes or Aretha Franklin if I was ever given the chance in a movie or a play. I would also love to play the role of Cleopatra. You know growing up and being African American and light skin, sometimes you don’t always fit around your peers and people can make fun of you when you don’t look like them or you don’t fit in to a little box that they would like to put you in.
It is nice to see a role model of your skin color making a different and changing the world. I remember playing the role of a robber in my class with my friends CeCe and Hannah and I was so excited by how my classmates took our roles and how we enjoyed playing the part.I also remember growing up to Janet Jackson’s music and playing the role of Janet Jackson as “Penny” in Good Times in school for drama class. I love her as a person and artist and I felt honored to play her part.
My belief and hope in Jesus Christ is what carriers me through in the rough and hard parts of my life. "He is always with you", my Grandmother would say and I will always believe that. My father showed me how to pray and I remember that when prayers go up, then blessings come down.
I lost my Daddy to a battle with cancer and my Grandmother in the hospital during an operation, and my Aunt just about a year ago. Now at twenty-eight, life has taken me on many different adventures and heartache has helped me to be strong. I started a Foundation in my father’s name with the help of my Church family and have helped to feed about sixty-seven families. It is tough not having my Daddy, Grandmother and Aunt here; they were so much the backbone to this family that it seems like only yesterday when we lost them.
When asked about losing and iconic figure like Michael Jackson all I could say was that I feel like another family member for me has died. You must understand for a little girl growing up Michael Jackson was the person I wanted to see when I was nine years old and in the hospital for heart surgery. There will never be another Michael Jackson and I will miss him.
Since Michael passed I wanted to do something special and different for the family, I wrote a letter and sent a card to Jermaine Jackson telling him that I registered Michael’s name with the International Star Registry and had an Official Star named after Micheal and finalized on what would have been his 51st birthday. I know that they know he is watching down from above and I just hoped that when they looked up at the stars, they could also think of him. This way it would be something that no matter where they were they all could share. Life can be challenging but, with God in your life anything and everything is possible.
“What better way to give someone encouragement but, to support them through their dreams.” cartoons. Their music would fill our car every sunday when the family would go to see my grandmother and on any other family trips we would take.

And ALL THE BEST TO AUSTIN! GOOD THING GOING AND GOING AND GOING :=))) San Valentine is approaching!
There is a lot on my mind today, I have a feeling of happiness but, I also have a feeling of sadness. On the night Michael passed away, I made up my mind that there was no way I could do a website for the Jackson Family now and anyone would honestly think that it was from the heart.
Most would assume that I did it because when Michael past that I all of a sudden would do this site for him and the Jackson family. That same night I dreamed about Michael and in the dream he was dressed in white and all he did was smile. For two more nights this same dream came again and again on the third night I asked him in my dream, why me? Of all the family members, friends, and fans he had in the world why me? He simply answers and said, “Remember me, Remember who I am and what I stood for. Tell your children and your children’s children about me. I will always be with you, I’ll be there”. I remember waking up with tears in my eyes feeling like I didn’t deserve a chance to see him and yet, he was asking me to remember him. Then the website came to me again and I realized that I had to do the website. To be celebrating a year is truly amazing and a blessing so, when asked why I chose 3T at first is simple, 3T their cousins, Aunts and Uncles legacy is Michael’s legacy and to remember Michael, they must be a part of it.
I want it understood that We Love 3T is not trying to be better than anyone else’s site. We welcome other sites to partner with us and it makes me sad to hear that we are being told that another site is better than us or the we are trying to outdo another site and so on because that is simply untrue. I have thanked various Jackson Family members in the past not to show off but, because they don’t need to respond to my e-mails or questions, they did not ask me to do this and when I can write to someone and they respond with understanding and I have been in situations before where no thank you was ever given, I am sorry but, my first chance I have I am going to say thank you.
It is truly a blessing for me and I know you all know that at times I can get a little carried away with e-mails but if something is happening, I just feel the need to share it with you and I try to respond back to as many e-mails that I can but, sometimes it doesn’t always work out for me. I would also like to take this time and say that it was my understanding that some of your e-mails may have been lost in our spam box and I truly apologize for that so, if you know that you sent in an e-mail and you do not see your message posted please contact me through our form on the front as soon as you can.
My Reason for Wanting to Send Treasure the "Giant Card"...
I came up with the idea to do this “Giant Card” for Treasure because when I was about her age, I went into the hospital for surgery. I was really scared and I had a lot of people surrounding me and praying for me. I did hurt a lot in the beginning after surgery and I didn’t want a lot of company. As time went on though, I started to feel better and the cards I received from others really made me feel a lot better. I also hope that the cards and messages that Treasure will receive will also help make her feel better. I asked Jana from 3T Fans United, Janneke from Jackson-Source and the Jenna from the Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait to help spread the word to fans of the Jackson Family to write in and send Treasure get well messages for the “Giant Card” along with individual cards that they would like to send to Treasure themselves.
My Heart goes out to Joshua and his Family..
I truly know what it is like having someone sick with cancer. It is not an easy road to see a love one hurt and going through from this disease. I truly hope that Joshua will enjoy his card and good news will continue to pour in his direction. It is a blessing from God that doctors were unable to find cancer in the first test and I pray and hope that when the next test comes back Joshua will be on the road to a full recovery. God Bless You Joshua and your Family.
I am so thankful for many things in my life, my family and my friends. Come Jan 29, 2011, we will be celebrating our 1st year Anniversary on We Love 3T and I can't believe how time has gone by. So much has happened in a year and I can't begin to write about it all, but I am truly thankful for the friendships that I have made and the support that has been given to me by everyone. I have been putting off writing this for a while because every time I think about Michael’s passing away and all the love and the overwhelming support I can't help but tear up. It has been such a blessing for me.
First, I have to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, from whom all blessings flow, my mom, my family, We Love 3T members, We Love 3T Twitter followers, and We Love 3T Facebook friends.
To Jana (3T Fans United) thanks for supporting me from day one and for not treating me like I was tiring to rain on your parade but, that I was a friend that you didn't mind helping along the way.
To Natalie,thanks for such a beautiful friendship and all of your prayers for my family and me.
To Taj, Wow, I cannot believe I have been given the opportunity to become friends with you and I am so thankful for all of your support. Code Z: The Series Rocks!! You are the best and a sweet, dear friend.
To Mr. Tito thanks for your tweets, they make my day!!
To Taryll and TJ thank you for your support and for being willing to pray for me when you knew something was wrong, even though you are still going through yourselves (Whenever, Wherever, Forever).
To T-Rio (Thayana, Thaina, Thaisa) you welcomed me with open arms, ladies, and you have been so supportive of me. I thank you very much.
To Mr. Randy and Mr. Randy's team thank you for supporting my idea for Treasure.
Mr. Jackie thanks for the picture, the letter, and the banners and I will always love you too.
To Chris from Mr. Jackie's team thanks for the help and the support; even when you wanted to laugh and I felt like crying, thanks for keeping me smiling and being willing to go to bat for me.
To the Jackson Family thank you for allowing me to do this website for you all and I promise to uphold the truth and honor that this family truly deserves.
To Jen and Mr. Jerry from the Michael Jackson Tribute thanks for your support and being willing to be there for me.
Thank you to Jackson-Source, the Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait, MJSUNIFC, and the Jackson Family Foundation.
To Vera and Joshua thank you for allowing me in your world and Joshua sweetheart, you are such an inspiration to me and a reminder of how great God really is.
If Michael was here today, I would tell him that at a young age you came into my world through the Jackson Five cartoons, you came into my heart proving who was BAD, you became my hero in Smooth Criminal, you danced across my heart straight to the moon like no one else, you helped me to Remember the Time, Heal the World, and care about the Earth, spreading love and hope to so many, I Jam and Rock With You and still I Can't Stop Loving You and like a comet blazing through the open sky you are Gone Too Soon.
Thank you all and like Michael would say I love you more.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!
85' A.B. For L.O.V.E.
I would like to take this time out and say thank you to everyone for your prayers, messages, and e-mails of support during the passing of my grandfather. It really means a lot and I will always be grateful to everyone for their support during my time of need. -Amber

Amber Speaks Out In Support of the Jackson Family...
At first I said, I would stay quiet and keep my peace but, the more I think
about it the more it truly saddens me.
Many of you have written to ask me if it is true.
The idea that anyone would announce that Michael Jackson would have
hired anyone to harm his family members is sick, twisted, and absolutely ridiculous. Mr. Randy Jackson has also said, that the allegations are absolutely absurd.
I have been a fan of the Jackson family as long as I can remember and they have gone through sooo much pain from losing Michael Jackson. Why on earth do these stories continue to be told? This is a family, not a band or a group of individuals place on the earth to make the world happy but, a family.
When Angela Bassett played Mrs. Katherine Jackson in the Jackson's family movie, The Jacksons: An American Dream and said, that "the Jackson's are much more than a musical group, the Jackson's are a family and they do not need to be afraid of each other" she told the truth. The sad part is that many will never understand this.
For years such lies have been told to try to pit the Jackson family against one another. At first Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson hated each other. Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson were the same person. La Toya Jackson was jealous of her sister Janet Jackson and her brother Michael Jackson's relationship. Janet Jackson didn't want to perform at Michael Jackson's 30th Anniversary. Janet Jackson and Rebbie Jackson Brown don't get along. The stories go on and on even now, such as, the Jackson family is trying to profit off of Michael Jackson's death and the Jackson Brother's are using Michael Jackson's name for the Upcoming "Unity Tour".
I want to clear something up right now, for those of you who feel
that Michael Jackson is still alive, for those who believe that Michael Jackson would have a hit man out on his own family. Oh, how this hurts me to my soul, that some would believe that Michael Jackson is a God; this website is not for you.
I have been blessed a thousand times over to be friends with some of the
members of the Jackson family and I will not allow just anything on my site. The truth to the best of my knowledge will only be shared on We Love 3T, 85' A.B. For L.O.V.E. S.D.J. Fans Unite and on a friend of mine and close friend of the Jackson family "The Official Prince Parker Fans".
If you are looking for anything else, if you expect anything else these are not the websites for you. -Amber
Why I Believe In the Spirit of Santa Claus...
A story was shared with me years ago about a woodcutter and his wife who lived in Poland.
About two or three miles far away in the woods off from any main roads the woodcutter lived with his wife and they had no children. A two hour’s drive from them lived a family with a mother, no father and around six or seven children. The family was poor and finding food for the children was all the mother could do and many times they had to go without meals.
The youngest of the children, Sarah took ill. The doctor had told
the mother that he had done all he could do and there was no hope at all for the child to live. On the way home, one day the woodcutter met the mother on the side of the road. With tears in her eyes she told the woodcutter her story. She could barely keep food on the table, Christmas was coming, she had no money for toys, her youngest daughter Sarah, had taken ill and it could be her last Christmas. The only request the child made that her mother could remember was that she had always dreamed of having a toy baby doll.
The woodcutter was so touched by the woman’s story and remembering seeing the children many times before playing together on his way home from the market. He returned home and set out to make as many wooden objects that he could for sale in the market place to raise money for the mother and her children. He wanted to help make the youngest child, Sarah well again. The woodcutter also worked on toys for the children including a baby doll for Sarah.
After the wood cutter was pleased with the amount raised and all
the toys finished he and his wife decided to deliver food, toys, and money to help Sarah on Christmas Eve night. The wood cutter and his wife could not think of any better time to deliver the precious gifts. Thinking back to the stories he had heard of about God and his gift to us, Jesus. The greatest gift of all and he wanted to very much give to this family in need.
That Christmas Eve night the woodcutter and his wife set out to go to the mother and her children was the coldest night of the year. They had
trouble seeing through a snowy blizzard in a sleigh being lead by two donkeys. At times they were not sure they were going to make it. They finally were able to make it however, and the mother was overwhelmed by the woodcutter’s and his wife’s love. She and the children including Sarah truly were grateful and the money that the wood cutter was able to raise the mother was able to use to get more help for her daughter and she was able to live.
Once Sarah was of age to be married and have a family of her own,
she told them about the woodcutter and his wife, the special Christmas that they gave, the money he had raised for her and her family, and the special wooden baby doll he had made for her. Her children passed the story down to their children, and their children passed it down to their children and so on and so on.
Like many stories past down, people have changed and added their
own ideas to fit their life styles but, the message remains clear. It is better to give than to receive because God gave to us such a wonderful gift at Christmas, we should all be like the woodcutter and his wife better known today as Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus.
I guess the questions we must ask ourselves is why not give a little hope to people, especially children who may not have hope? What about people who have no clothes or food to eat, should we just forget about them? Was it not Jesus himself who taught us that to refuse the least among us would be refusing him?
I do not believe the story of Santa Claus told by Sarah throughout generations was ever meant to take away from Jesus at all but, to remind us of him, and become his eyes and ears. What if the woodcutter had not cared about the mother and her children? What if he had not cared about the sick child and her dream of a baby doll? Taking away any child’s dreams, leaves them with nothing to look forward to for tomorrow.
Now maybe some may feel that the story of Santa Claus should never have been told but, for me every Christmas Eve, I think about this
story and its meaning. I feel something special in my heart, that someone cares about me and for that reason I will always believe.

Amber to Receive a DOT in Michael's Heart...
Hello Everyone, I was given a surprise on May 24, 2011, that I was not expecting. Valerie, Director of Operation & Administration/ Member Relations and Artist David IIan from the Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait asked me if I would accept receiving a DOT in Michael's heart in the Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait for ongoing
support of the tribute and helping to
bring awareness to some of Michael's friends and family about the Tribute Portrait. I am truly honored by this and thankful to help.
I like helping and spreading a little joy in people's hearts. I have been supported and loved by so many that I feel honored to give a little love back. I know that I don't have to receive the support that I get and I know that it is not something that I should take for granted. Thank you again for everyone who has stood by me and supported We Love 3T. I have truly met and become friends with truly amazing people and it is something in my heart I will always treasure.
To Treasure and Joshua, you are my heroes and every time I see your beautiful faces I know that God is still working miracles even today. May God continue to bless both of you.
Michael, When I think about your heart, I think of someone who would give all he had just to see someone smile. When I think about your heart, I think about the hospitals you visited and the children who got a chance to see you no matter how old or young. When I think of your heart, I think of the person who cared about the earth and the people in it. When I think about your heart, I think of the passion you had for music and your will to share it with others. When I think about your heart, I think of your smile and those beautiful eyes that if only some people in this world had taken a moment to see, would have understood what truly makes you special for me. -Love Amber
